Flaine, in the Savoie department of France, is offering deals on lodging and ski pass packages just in time for the holiday season. This would be an ideal opportunity to explore the resort's 265 kilometres of snow-packed pistes all the while saving a few euros.

The Les Pléaides residence, rated three stars, is offering seven nights of accommodation starting at 40€ per person per day. The price includes four six-day passes for two adults and two children for the Grand Massif linked ski area. This price is based on four person occupancy of a two bedroom residency.

Flaine Immobilier has put together a similar package starting at 32€ per person per day. The seven-night lodging is in an apartment this time, but the two adult and two child passes are still included and allow the family to venture onto all of the pistes of the Grand Massif area.

Flaine Réservation also wants to make skiing and lodging more accessible to families. Two adults and two children can snuggle into a studio flat for 32€ per person per night with the Avantage Famille. This offer also includes free ski passes-with the purchase of a six day adult "Grand Massif" pass, a child from five to 11 years old can ski for free.

Snow-loving families can also opt for a package that includes accommodation plus ski passes plus material hire plus ski lessons for the childre for 52€ per person per day. The adult six-day Grand Massif pass still includes a free child's pass and lodging is in a studio flat.

All of these deals are valid from Dec. 19 to 26, 2009, so why not consider spending a magical Christmas on the pistes of Flaine in France?
